" is next. >> john: the g.o.p. is evolving on immigration refororm because it better tested with focus groups. the grieving father of a 6-year-old newtown victim is openly heckled and satan's mignons are now working around the clo clock to prepare the special party room in hel for americans who care more about their toys than the lives of other americans. >> the boy scout of america are open to letting some chapters accept gays while letting others discriminate against gays. they used to be all homophobic. today is the birthday of univision's cristina saralegui miss oprah winfrey congressman paul ryan and 179 years ago today, president andrew jackson ordered the first use of federal troops to suppress a labor dispute. that should never take anything away from his solid record as a genocidal indian killer. >> john: good evening, i'm john fuglesang. thank you for joins for "viewpoint." is it possible, could both house of congress and the white house actually come together and find a solution to one of our country's most contentious issues? according to president obama in las vegas today
>> john: six months after reiterating gays and lesbians have no place in the scouts and neff will, the national board might let local scouting groups decide their own policies. only last july, the organization said it would keep barring openly gay people saying same-sex relations don't mesh with the scouting oath to be "morally straight." that always seemed more like a pun than a reason. but what made the board start rethinking discrimination now? well maybe corporate donors such as intel that have been putting on a lot of pressure or maybe it's the million plus signatures that supported ending the bigoted ban or maybe the scout law itself. which does require scouts to be friendly courteous kind and brave. but is it really brave if the bigotry is still optional? joining me is zach wahls an eagle scout whose speech defending his two moms' right to marry went heroicically viral. he's author of the book "my two moms." it is a pleasure. no big secret, zach, when it comes to gay rights, the boy scouts have been in the wilderness for quite a long time. how important a change is this? ca
-election, this was john mccain's position on immigration. >> complete the dang fence. >> it will work this time? senator, you're one of us. >> i'm john mccain and i approve this message. >> and then, on november 6th, 2012, they lost 71% of the hispanic vote to president obama, and literally after that, they started to talk about compromise on immigration. >> we have to get rid of the immigration issue altogether, it is simple for me to fix it. i think you control the border first, create a pathway for the people here, you don't say you have to go home. and that is a position that i have evolved on. because you know what? it has got to be resolved. >> and so today, immigration became the first order of business in the new congress for some republicans. >> first step in what will continue to be difficult, but achievable. and i don't think i have to remind anyone the last major attempt was over six years ago. now we will again attempt to commit the remaining resources needed to secure the border. modernize and streamline our current immigration system, and create a tough but fair path to citizenship for th
, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and others had joined with george w. bush, this could have been done in 2007. >> right. what john mccain sort of didn't say but implied was what has changed about this issue? it's simple. november 6th, the 2012 general election. the overall share of republican votes was -- people that voted for republicans is white. 11% nonwhite. it is -- that is an untenable -- we saw in 2012, and it will only get worse if they continue to lose 70% plus of the hispanic vote. that's what's changed here. republicans broadly recognize it. the question is jose touched on it, the path to citizenship. that is the piece that is always the one that conservative republicans said we will not do this. we are validating illegal behavior, no matter what we do. now there are some republicans on board. marco rubio, john mccain, lindsey graham saying, look, this has to be in
texas senator john cornyn, who has decided to make himself the de facto leader of the hagel opposition. >> the nomination of chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense has already done damage to the united states' credibility in its attempt to deny iran a nuclear weapon. >> hagel is also likely to face questions about his position on gay rights after his 1998 comments, criticizing a u.s. ambassador nominee as openly, aggressively gay. hagel apologized and that former adviser, james hormel, now supports hagel's nomination. but much of the opposition to hagel is rooted in his loud split with the republican party over the iraq war and skepticism about his willingness to use force. in an interview with cnn, vice president biden argued that hagel is no dove. >> the idea of getting engaged in a ground war, in a country that's in transition is not a precipitation any military man would suggest. >> in many ways, obama's pick of hagel, who he forged a relationship with in the senate, then traveled with to afghanistan and iraq in july of 2008, along with cia nominee john brennan and incomin
. senator john mccain took the lead and set the tone early on. >> our concerns pertain to the quality of your professional judgment and your worldview on critical areas of national security, including security in the middle east. >> john mccain did not always have grave concerns about chuck hagel's worldview. in fact, he named chuck hagel a co-chair of his 2000 presidential campaign. >> my fellow americans, i introduce you to a great republican, a great american leader, my friend, john mccain! >> how come mccain didn't get that kind of greeting, huh? or hagel, should i say. not only were hagel and mccain good buddies, john mccain wanted to give hagel the exact job he's up for right now. he told voters in new hampshire, "there's a lot of people that could be secretary of state -- secretary of defense. one of them i think is senator chuck hagel." but mccain sure has a different view of hagel today. he still can't get over hagel's opposition to the surge in iraq. >> do you stand by that -- those comments, senator hagel? >> well, senator, i stand by them because i made them. >> were you r
saw john mccain intimating, they're trying to win some of them back here. >> absolutely. it's a group they tried to court every single election year that i can remember in the last couple years. the thing is, it's not necessarily that latinos, immigration is the number one thing on their list that's important. i think it was the economy this last election. part of it is the tone. you hear -- there's a lot of things that are said during this debate that has been hurtful to the republican party. i think when you talk to a lot of latino republican strategists they'll tell you that. so that is going to be one of the things they have to navigate. the tone and how they talk about this. in addition to -- on top of the action. >> what it really comes down to is all things being equal, though, when it comes down to immigration. that's where it stands out for this one group. >>> stand by. i want to bring in congressman steve israel who joins us right now. congressman, thanks for being here. >> good morning. >> let me start with this. even john boehner said now is the time to deal with immigrati

. host: senator john mccain yesterday at the bipartisan press conference, talking about why he thinks members of his party should get behind the proposal. caller -[video clip] >> the republican party is losing the support of the disparate regions of the hispanic citizens. this is a preeminent issue for those citizens. i think that over the years, republicans in particular, but also democrats and all of our citizens have realize the reality of what all of my colleagues just stated. we cannot continue as a nation with 11 million people residing in the shadows. we have to address the issue and it has to be done in a bipartisan fashion. if we do succeed, and i think that we will, it will be a testimony -- testimonial to the efforts of ted kennedy from years ago, which laid the groundwork for this agreement. this agreement has very little difference from that legislation that was brought by senator kennedy some years ago. host: john mccain of arizona, speaking yesterday. anita, new york, independent line. caller: it may be different in new york city, but why do these politicians assume tha
along. in the house, speaker john boehner says he remains optimistic in legislation moving forward. republican congressman mario diaz ballard says he has been working with democrats in his chamber. >> we've seen that the speaker has said he wants to get it done. we've seen what the minority leader says that they want to get it done. here is the good news. a group of us have been ready for years. we've worked out most of the complicated details. you know the devil is in the detail. well, we've dealt with that devil. now it's an issue of just filing legislation and hopefully get it passed. >> yeah, republicans everywhere are talking sensibly about the importance of getting 11 million people out of the shadows. >> we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes, and even watch our children while not affording them any of the benefits that make our country so great. >> and here is why senators like john mccain understand the need for republicans to focus on immigration reform. >> elections. elections. the republican party is l
: this week, president obama's nominee to become the next secretary of state, senator john kerry was received very well. his confirmation hearing by democrats and republicans. >> i commend his nomination to you without resignation. >> he'll be a terrific bridge from the hill to the administration. >> reporter: his support in the senate is not expected to d is likely re the expected to become the next secretary of state. but, handicapping the odds for confirmation of president obama's other nominees for important positions, is tricky. like richard cordray for the director of the consumer financial protection bureau. >> president barack obama: after they refused to give him a vote, i took action to appoint him on my own. >> reporter: the president renominated him this week and senator mike crapo, one of 45 republican senators to opposed his nomination last year and, the senator said this week until key structure changes are made to the bureau to ensure accountability and transparency, i will continue my opposition to any nominee for director. confirmation hearings for deputy national security a
't strike john mccain when he admitted his own party had a problem. there seems to be some truth talking, some movement towards compromise. are you optimistic about this? >> well, first of all, i'm glad senator mccain said what he did because we don't want the republicans to get any credit for having a moral -- they're doing this because they can read election returns, and they've got to fwet this issue at least beyond them. they have to understand there's a price to pay. do they pay the price if they're obstructionist on 100% background check? do they pay the price if they're obstructionist on high capacity magazines in they have to make that decision. on the fiscal cliff themselves, do they pay the price if they don't do something that is commonsense and a workable approach to debt? energy. all these things. we like wee winding tape to 2007 and -- george w. bush is really -- that tape speaks for itself. gornl bush did in 2007 introduce immigration reform that went basically nowhere. he made personal calls to members of his own party to get it passed. only 12 of the 49 republican senato
government leaders the nation needs stricter gun control laws. john henrehan spoke with both sides. >> reporter: they marched on constitution avenue from the grounds of the u.s. capitol to the grounds of the monument, carrying signs, de crying the power of the national rifle association. some carried signs with the names of individual victims of gun violence. other signs asked the country to remember the massacre in newtown, connecticut. a small contingent from that community joined on stage. the crowd appeared to be about 3,000 strong. organizers warned the fight for more gun control legislation would be a tough one, but -- >> look at all the changes people said couldn't happen. civil rights, women's rights, don't ask don't tell. sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. change will happen when we work for it as a country. >> let us come together from across in nation, reinstate the assault weapons ban. [ applause ] >> reporter: speakers called for limiting the size of ammunition clips and for requiring background checks for all gun sales. after the massacre at sandy hook elementary sc
to people just cowering. let's go to carry in wisconsin. >> caller: john mccain and marco rubio are wasting their time. they will never get the latino vote at all. and all of this bob mcdonald stuff of trying to pass abortion stuff around. it's none of their business about the ababortions. >> stephanie: wait what does abortion have to do with the immigration debate. >> caller: just how foolish the republican party is, and the way they think. the abortion i would like all of the -- you know none-abortion people to think do americans have the right to make decisions about their kids? bob mcdonald. can i call him and say you have the right to have a kid or not. or make decisions about his kids >> stephanie: or can i shove something up one of your orafass? >> caller: yeah. and i'm a former tea partier, and they have brainwashed most republicans. the ex-tea partiers are -- they think the 47% is so stupid and they are not going to gain anymore votes because people will only get better. >> stephanie: i don't know about you personally, but i think that's what happened to a lot of
for the next couple of days. i'm here with john pod hotter and bill kristol, founder and editor of "the weekly standard," and we're going to get right into it. john podhoretz -- >> podhoretz -- >> john podhoretz, you wrote a book a few years back called "bush country" in which you celebrated the achievements of our 43rd president, and george w. bush was a guy who thought deeply about imuation reform, poverty and trying to craft a middle class agenda for the gop. george w. bush is a figure that many republicans have been running away from. so tell me, do you think republicans were too quick to abandon george w. bush? >> i'm sorry, what? i was tweeting. i'm sorry. [laughter] um, well, yes and no. i think, obviously, politically republicans distanced themselves from george w. bush because it was politic thing to do. numbers don't lie. he became very unpopular. parties tend not to embrace figures and politicians who become unpopular. my view is that a lot of the distress over bush's domestic agenda from which republicans fled beginning really in 2005 had, it was a, it was an ancillary result of th
. the other story we wanted to mention is that john mccain's vice presidential pick of four years ago, sarah palin, has also been sent into the wilderness after fox news failed to reknew her contract. for the sake of clarity, these stories are not connected in any way whatsoever. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> tea for two. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this, barack and hillary, good-bye or hello? was last night's dual appearance on 60 minutes a fond good-bye or a statement? was it the president's way of saying i know which way the wind is blowing? was it barack obama saying i want a democrat to replace me? hillary clinton is the best bet to do it, i'm ready for this to happen? it's powerful stuff any way you listen to it. i think secretary clinton will run for president. i don't see how she can walk away from it. she's the one woman right now in the picture who could win the president next time. not only that, i think she's the favorite of either gender and either party to win
, this appears to be the very first time senator john mccain has signed onto one of the president's legislative priorities, and you may be surprised to learn that republicans have made this sudden shift from previous immigration proposals such as herman cain's electrified fence and mitt romney's stance of self-deportation. after all, it wasn't even a year ago that congressman steve king of iowa compared america's immigrant selection process to that of picking out a dog. >> pick the one that's the friskiest, the one that's engaged the most, and not the one that's over there sleeping in the corner. you get the pick of the litter, and yourself a pretty good bird dog. we got the pick of every darn civilization on the planet. >> right, pick work dogs, not lazy dogs from those donor countries. congressman king said later his remarks were meant as a compliment. charming. so there has been an evolution by the republican party and it's not because rick perry accused anyone of not having a heart. senator mccain, how about some of that famous straight talk? >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at
in combat? >> well, it's people like senator john mccain, a vietnam veteran himself and member of the ranking armed services committee. here is what he had to say. >> i think women are obviously are prepared to serve side by side with men in combat. i just want to emphasize though, there should be the same physical and mental standards for anyone to perform certain roles and functions in the military. >> reporter: and many women say it's a question of equal rights as well, since serving in combat allows the soldiers to advance through the ranks farther and faster. >> harris: steve centanni reporting live from washington. thank you very much. >> reporter: you bet. >> harris: for the seconds time in two days we're hearing from former republican vice-presidential nominee wisconsin congressman paul ryan. hours ago, congressman ryan questioned president obama's economic strategy and called for a serious down payment on reducing our nation's ballooning debt. he was also asked about his thoughts on a possible presidential run atop the ticket in 2016 and he had an answer. >> i think
stands made him a very effective player. i think it was no coincidence that john boehner wanted him to be -- >> in the room. >> in the room. >> if there was one area that it seemed that no matter what he tried this didn't work, it was housing. what did he say about that? >> i didn't talk to him about housing, though i've heard him speak about housing before. andssential argument was that the money used in stabilizing the housing market could be much more effectively used in a fiscal stimulus. so trying to public money into rea reducing foreclosures -- >> they put -- >> they put relatively little amount of money. his argument was that money was much better spent on the payroll tax cut or on the stimulus package. >> the other message was that he said the parties aren't that far apart. they seemed to be fairly close and then the republicans seemed to walk away from that deal the second time. what did he mean by that? >> i think what he means is that given what we did on spending last year, given this tax increase that we got, we've essentially done three quarters of the problem. the re

. >> reporter: possibly the senate's president's plan could torpedo the gang of it's plan. it almost killed john mccain's presidential campaign in 2007 and 2008. he began to run around saying secure the border first. that was his mantra after almost dying by supporting immigration reform. it will be very important what the president says and rubio's chief of staff was tweeting out last night that it was possible that something the president proposed could be a deal killer. last thing, bill, is that the plan is not written at all in the senate. it will go to the senate judiciary committee where patrick leahy has a liberal rating of 95 to 100, depending what liberal group you're be looking at. a lot of people on the left and democrat are looking for him to liberalize the bill quite a bit. that could also be a deal-killer for republicans. bill: quickly here. are republicans going to be behind this based on what you heard so far? >> reporter: i think the republicans who opposed it back in '06 and '07, if they're still in the senate they will oppose it today despite the election results of 2012. if y
, john heilemann, wrote this fascinating piece about the relationship describing it as a political marriage of convenience of sorts. he wrote that, quote, if obama wins, it may be because the former president saved his presidency, but what exactly do the clintons get in return? has there been or was there at some point a sort of a wink, wink, nod, nod, a handshake of sorts between the two? >> i can't imagine that that's possible at all. i think what you saw with president clinton was a commitment to stand up for what he believed in in this country, and he believed that barack obama would make the best president for our country at the time. folks who want to engage in conspiracy theories and anything other than one former president certainly understands better than anyone else what a current president has done and what it took to achieve that, that's all it was. >> kiki, there have been some questions about secretary clinton's health. is she healthy enough for a presidential run? >> i think she's healthy enough for anything she wants to do. i wish i was as healthy as she is. you kn
